30 Week HEALTH CHALLENGE...Challenge #3 ~ Dry Brushing

I know what you are thinking...wait a minute she is on #3 challenge isn't she? Well, yes I am on week 3 but I skipped one on yoga and I am going to wait to do one on spinach when I have some in the garden. [o= It is very white and cold outside and no spinach to be seen.

I have to rave about this challenge. I have been dry brushing for a few weeks now and LOVE love love it. It feels amazing and it is a wonderful way to tighten up your skin, make it smooooth and soft, and get rid of toxins. Plus I have to say it is helping me with my varicose veins. Yes, they are fading. ((happy dance))

To learn how to dry brush your face too. Go HERE.

Other than this I have to say that I have maintained my weight loss and I will be measuring myself tonight and update my measurements on this post tomorrow. I am getting stronger and love how my back doesn't hurt anymore. T-tapp seem to put my upper back into place each time I do it. I have been doing the Basic Workout Plus 3-4 times/wk and I will be starting Hoedowns, Primary Back Stretch and Walk Away the Inches on the off days and take Sunday's totally off. I didn't get to posting what I have been doing in the kitchen ...yet but it is to come. I am still tweaking and experimenting. I don't want to share till I know what I share are winners.


I have decreased 1/2 inch in my waist, ribs, abdominal, and upper thighs. Lately I have noticed shape changes more than anything. I love how things are smoothing out and taking a more pleasant shape. Slow and steady wins the race. I look forward to where I will be in 6 months to a year from now. Oh btw I only measure myself once a month. I don't do well if I measure any more often that that.

  1. I am so glad this is working for you my friend :)

  2. Dry brushing your skin? Mary, I learn the BEST things from you. Menopause is wreaking havoc on my skin for sure. Going to the video now.

  3. Will be back to watch this after I get back from my get-away with hubby. :) Thanks for sharing all you're learning with us, Mary! Good to visit with you today, my friend. :) ~Lisa

  4. Glad this is going so well for you!!! Blessings!!

  5. Sounds like things are going well for you, that's great to hear. I've been sick this week, so I didn't get my workout done like I would have wanted to. But next week I'll hopefully be able to do it. :)

  6. Wow, this works for varicose veins? I need to try it as I have some pretty bad veins after four babies! Thanks for the tip! :)


  7. I've heard about dry brushing before, but now I know more! It's definitely something I want to try. I'm on day 4 of T-tapp and am beginning to see a difference. YES!!



Thank you, each sweet comment brightens my day. Blessings!
